  • Since no one else felt it necessary to remind the CathInfo membership, I'm going to do it solidly and completely after-the-fact.

    Set your clocks AHEAD an hour on Saturday, March 7th, so you won't be 1 hour late for Mass!

    There, all I need now is a time machine, so I can post this a day or two ago, and then I won't miss Mass on the 3rd Sunday of Lent!

    Amazing how I could check in with Facebook, CathInfo, e-mail, CNN, etc. and not get a SINGLE reminder about daylight savings time coming up!

    I was even on my PC this morning, but there was no little window telling me the clock had been set ahead. Thanks for nothing, Linux Mint.

    I also was attentive to Father's sermon last week (no mention of upcoming Daylight Savings during the announcements, etc.) and no mention in last week's bulletin.

    Long story short, with so many coincidences lining up, I must say God positively willed that I miss Mass this morning. God's will be done.

  • I also took notice of the lack of reminders, not just this time but over the past two or three years.  I guess part of it is so many clocks change automatically (cell phone, computers, even many clock radios and other digital clocks that are "atomic"), so reminders aren't as necessary.

    Lol.  I actually enjoy having an extra hour of daylight in the evening!  However, it certainly makes sense is a very hot climates, like Arizona and Hawaii, to not have the extra daylight.

  • I want it all - the extra hour of daylight, but without losing sleep or missing Mass. :dancing:
    Luckily our chapel has a later morning Mass, but our pastor said the early Mass pews were half full, with most of the faithful wandering in near the end, looking very confused.

  • I don't like DST, never have. Maybe if I wasn't a "morning person" I would feel different about it but either way, I don't see any real benefit of changing the time by one hour twice a year.

    They gotta screw with everything - even God's time.
    For a small gain they travel far; for eternal life many will scarcely lift a foot from the ground. - Thomas A Kempis
